Play in the Sand Day comes on August 11 of every year. It does not matter where you play – whether on the sandpit, beach, or construction site. The important thing on Play in the Sand Day is to play in the sand. Whether you want to build a castle, bury a friend, write in it, or simply wiggle your toes in it, today’s is the perfect day for these activities.
History of Play in the Sand Day
Originally it was about making artistic sandcastles, and soft sculptures out of sand and water, but now it encompasses anything you do in the sand. Many major beaches around the world hold contests for the best artistic works. Busts of famous figures, immense sand castles one can walk around and not see over, to intricately molded and shaped designs that take your breath away.
Many beaches have easy access to food, drink, and fun near them, but it isn’t truly necessary. Bring some small shovels, a couple of pails, a few more people and enjoy the creativity as it spawns from you. Build a moat around your stuff, and fill it with water. Build sand beds so your comfort is perfected. Set up a small building, put the smallest child in, and make them the ruler of the new sand kingdom!
